Shabby Prim Bag

I decided to started a new category here at Tattered Sisters, and it's called Shabby Prim. I decided on this over the weekend as I was getting creative in my studio, trying to come up with new primitive crafts to create. This Shabby Prim Bag is the first thing I came up with.

Shabby Prim Bag

All you need to make this shabby prim bag is a ready-made plain muslin bag (no sewing necessary!), a paper doily (you could use a cloth one too--but I didn't want to ruin a real one), some spray adhesive, and some brown textured spray paint. First I sprayed a little adhesive on the back of the doily, and then placed it over the bottom edge of the bag. You can place it as high or low as you'd like. Once that was in place, I sprayed it with the brown textured spray paint. I let that dry (with a little help from my heat gun) and then gave it another coat. Then I removed the doily and voila! It was finished. :) You could spray the back too, of course, especially if you're using this as a gift. But I just did the front side on my sample so that you could see the results.

I love the combination of the Grungy Goods look, and the touch of shabby elegance that the doily provides. And the textured spray paint actually gives the bag the look of old leather, which was a happy accident! I love when that happens. You could fill this bag with grungy candles, pip berries, Sweet Annie, drieds, or whatever you'd like. What do you think?
